Birds of a feather, and all that. Soon, anyone who presents a problem for Glick dies, because of the connection between the Teamsters' loan that financed Glick's purchase of the casinos and the skim.
It is an incredible story, and if the movie intrigues you, you may really appreciate the added details provided by the book.
I loathe the inevitable comparisons made between "Casino" and "Goodfellas". That's where the similarities end.
Both films tackle stories in the criminal milieu and succeed in gripping the audience. Scorsese manages to make this film a fast-paced experience despite a nearly three hour running time.
He's ably abetted by some snappy editing by Thelma Schoonmaker, gorgeous cinematography by Robert Richardson, and good sense of the era love the cars and clothes.
Impeccable song choices on Scorsese's part on the soundtrack. The film is fascinating in how it portrays Las Vegas as a shimmering city which under it's surface is motivated by greed and avarice, which in turn breeds paranoia.
Just ask the eye in the sky. The first half of the film concerns itself with how some Midwest mobsters infiltrate a Vegas casino. The second half shows how overreaching causes their downfall.
DeNiro is superb as the oddsmaker who goes on to manage a casino only to be brought down by his own vanity.
Pesci is equally fine as the thug who wants to make Vegas his personal playground. Probably the best performance in the film belongs to Sharon Stone as DeNiro's wife who is at heart a hustler.
This is a difficult part to pull off because her's is essentially a character motivated by pure greed but Stone manages to convey the pathos to make her sympathetic.
I think Scorsese is a victim of his own success because this film was initially given lukewarm response from the critics and public alike.
Fortunately, time has been kind to "Casino". Prime Video Verified Purchase. One of my favorite movies.

The research for Casino began when screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi read a report from the Las Vegas Sun about a domestic argument between Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal , a casino figure, and his wife Geri McGee , a former topless dancer.
Argent was owned by Allen Glick, but the casino was believed to be controlled by various organized crime families from the Midwest.
This skimming operation, when uncovered by the FBI, was the largest ever exposed. Pileggi contacted Scorsese about taking the lead of the project, which became known as Casino.
Scorsese and Pileggi collaborated on the script for five months, towards the end of Some characters were combined, and parts of the story were set in Kansas City instead of Chicago.
A problem emerged when they were forced to refer to Chicago as "back home" and use the words "adapted from a true story" instead of "based on a true story".
They also decided to simplify the script, so that the character of Sam "Ace" Rothstein only worked at the Tangiers Casino, in order to show a glimpse of the trials involved in operating a Mafia-run casino hotel without overwhelming the audience.
The scene was too detailed, so they changed the sequence to show the explosion of Sam's car and him flying into the air before hovering over the flames in slow motion—like a soul about to go straight down to hell.
Filming took place at night in the Riviera casino in Las Vegas, with the nearby defunct Landmark Hotel as the entrance, to replicate the fictional Tangiers.
According to the producer Barbara De Fina , there was no point in building a set if the cost were the same to use a real-life one.
Several edits were made in order to reduce the rating to R. Upon its release, the film was heavily criticized for its intense violence.
